This question has nothing to do with my Elkie, I'm tying to help out my son. He has a nice 95 T-Bird with 17x8 wheels mounted on 255/45 tires. The backspace measures 6 1/2" and the offset is +51mm. The bolt pattern is 5x108 or 4 1/4". Given the size tire/rim on the car offset is critical. He hit a pot hole that ruined on of his rims. He just got new sneakers for the car so I need to stay with a 17" wheel. I cant seam to find any new rims that match what we need. Any of you guys know of a source for rims that have the above specs??
I and my son(even though he drives a Ford), Thank you for any help

If you want in to match the other three -there are a couple used wheel websites. The one I went to had a pic of every wheel they had.

For a non-matching one?
Junkyard?
Wheel spacer if you can't get one deep enough?
Summit Racing has wheels you pick the size, style, offset etc.

Thanks guys, we brought the wheel to a place that repairs them and they said it would crack if they tried to straighten it. Damn MASS. pot holes, he found a good one. I will try doing a search for used wheel web sites. We tried the manufacturer(TSW) and his wheel is discontinued.
